We don’t like to discriminate when it comes to introducing our Lovelies to handsome men. So since we recently showed you some of the best bods in the NBA in honor of the NBA finals (we’ll wait while you check out the link…), it’s only appropriate to do the same for the NHL (National Hockey League) now that the Stanley Cup finals are upon us.
Psst…in case you want to know what puck-crazed guys are cheering for at the bar, the Vancouver Canucks are playing the Boston Bruins for the title and the Canucks have a 1-0 lead in the series.
Sean Avery, seen above, is just one of the NHL’s good looking guys. And, to top that off, he even interned with Vogue a few season ago.
So, without further adieu, we bring you some of pro-hockey’s hotties (because it takes a certain kind of man to look good with missing teeth, black eye and a rearranged nose).
Dennis Seidenberg – Boston Bruins
The German-born defenseman has also played for the Philadelphia Flyers, Phoenix Coyotes, Carolina Hurricanes and Florida Panthers. Even though he’s off the market (he married his wife Rebecca in 2009), we can still swoon over his gorgeous wedding.
Tanner Glass - Vancouver Canucks
Not only is the left-winger flexible (nice high kick!), handsome and athletic, but he’s smart to boot! He captained Dartmouth’s hockey team in 2007, coming back to the rink after battling mono and toxic shock syndrome (due to the mono) during his first two years at the Ivy League school.
Mike Fisher – Nashville Predators
Before he got traded to the Predators from the Ottawa Senators, he was known as Mike Fisher. Now, in Opry Land, he’s known as Mr. Carrie Underwood.
Cam Ward – Carolina Hurricanes
The 27-year-old goalie has played for the Hurricanes for the past 6 season, having a monster season in 2006 when his team won the Stanley Cup and he won the Conn Smythe trophy, which is the sport’s MVP award equivalent.
Evander Kane – Atlanta Thrashers
Kane was the fourth overall pick in the 2009 NHL draft, which didn’t come as a surprise to anyone considering the talented athletic lineage the 19-year-old’s family has: dad was an amateur boxer (Kane’s named for boxer Evander Holyfield) and hockey player, mom was a pro volleyball player, one cousin played in the NFL and another boxed for Canada in the Olympics.
What do you think of our picks? Who are some of your favorite hockey hotties? Planning on tuning into the Stanley Cup finals?
